Judge’s comment about the winning entry “Morning Light” – A well-accomplished painting of the Australian Landscape applying the colours of the bush exquisitely. The artist demonstrates a comfortable familiarity with the acrylic medium giving the viewer a sense of belonging. The many beautiful contrasts of light & shade create a dramatic scene that invites further discovery.

Judge’s comment about the winning entry “Arkarra Swamp” – A beautifully rendered depiction of a peaceful location. The soft warm light invites the viewer into the scene while suggesting more discoveries beyond the light. This is an extremely flawless piece showing confidence in the medium and her talent.
